"My rich internal life longs to find a form in which it can be seen, felt, and touched. A sculptural alchemist, I work with natural materials--clay, bark, and sometimes stones--enjoying a magical collaboration with these elements. Magic happens when I allow myself to enter the quiet flow where only clay, bark, my eyes, and the skill of my hands reveal the visible from the invisible."
